With the Qstarz GPS module now part of the sousveillance backpack, I’m now able to track where I’ve been to right down to the second. That’s an insane amount of granularity!
The overview map (top) shows the journey I took from Clementi to City Hall, and back later in the evening.
The close-up map (bottom) shows me reaching Bugis Junction via cab @ 3.16pm, meeting my friend MrBig for a late lunch (MOS burger) @3.30pm, meeting the Digital Terrorist for dinner and two videoblog shoots (coming soon: hacking + comedy) @ 7pm. Living in the west side (story), we later head back together on Bus no. 7 @ 10.30pm.
Depending on satellite reception, every point (= every second) you see marked on the Google Earth map is click-able to reveal metadata which includes Date, Time, Latitude, Longitude, Relative Speed and Distance from origin (see bubble pop-up in lower map).
Now I’ve just found out how to live-blog my position via Google Maps (See DIY Real Time GPS Tracker), but that’s another project in itself. Still wondering if there’s a simpler web service that does this for me.
Aside: Looking through my Qstarz Travel Recorder’s logs, we can even see where it was born!
